and replace healthcare reform on day one. the two lesser known healthcare reform provision of the affordable care act kick in today and that means good news for patients and consumers. we're using head care's -- we're using medicare's coverage to help provide more efficient care and higher quality care by withholding 1% of medicare payments to about 3,000 hospitals. medicare authorities can then redistribute and that $850 million to reward hospitals that perform the best. the second part of approving equality of care comes from encouraging hospitals to lower the rate of readmissions. it gets very expensive if we don't get people treated the first time around. so hospitals with high rates of readmissions will lose up to 1% of their medicare payment until they can improve conditions and care. both of these improvements are an effort to get away from a system that pays for quantity of procedures and care as opposed

addresses and things like that. that was their huge conspiracy. now unfolding in florida this is a voter registration firm paid directly by the republican party, acorn has never been paid by the democratic party. and lo and behold, at least 11 counties are finding hundreds of bogus registration forms and fox news could not care less. >> stephanie: yep. >> flushed down. >> stephanie: this is becoming -- this is a criminal investigation. >> oh, yeah. >> stephanie: no small story right? >> yeah. it was sent over to -- the board of elections and some florida law enforcement is looking into it. the republican party was forced -- not only in florida but five states i believe -- well, this firm was hired in five states. they've been fired in florida and fired in colorado. there was. >>tube clip of one of the employees supposedly soliciting registration forms in colorado but only republican registration

under the last six months under jimmy carter. ronald reagan won and it skyrocketed back up. ronald reagan did not inherit climbing unemployment the way barack obama did. ronald reagan actually inherited unemployment on its way down. he got into office and it did a u-turn and it went back up. hannity -- and the reagan -- >> stephanie: exploded -- >> never want to talk about that little fact. >> stephanie: exploded the debt. amazing how they ignore that. that's all they talk about now is the debt and the deficit. >> fdr caused great depression. >> stephanie: all right. steven crowder. a comedian. >> is that who he is? >> stephanie: fox news. >> something i know because i'm a millennial. we tend to vote in our own self-interest. you see in the occupied movement vote for more -- not based on the constitution parameters of government. not based ond founding principles but what the government can give them.

these mythical independents are looking at that going okay, who do we want to hang out with? do we want to hang out with the crazies over here or do we want to go to the people that sound reasonable and live in reality over here? >> stephanie: right. and you being a helper like are you to the republicans, you gave the republican party probably the best -- you said what the republicans need to do is take a long look in the mirror. we're a bunch of unmitigated [ bleep ] heads or you need to admit they're simply the party of the greedy and the crazy and we don't know how to change that. it is time to give up. >> yeah. >> stephanie: it will be interesting to see what happens after the election, right? >> right. you know, there is a chance if it's -- i think michael tomasky wrote in "daily beast" about what happens if it's a landslide and i think that there's always that possibility that the republican party is going to have to tear itself in two. it will have to be rumpelstiltskin-like and rip itself in two and become a conservative party and then the
sane conservative party. and we know that the crazy conservative party will be way bigger at this point. >> stephanie: yeah. here's the headline i love best.
